Which Kind to Use

Salba is just Chia my opinion just sales hype and over should be able to pick up quality Chia for around $16 per pound. It has been a great addition to my morning cereal etc. and seems to sustain me through the day. It's effects were most notable when I first tried it...and diminished since. (a natural law) Unlike flax the omegas are available even without grinding...

I have been taking 2tbs of Chia daily for close to two years and would not go a day without it. Be careful where you buy it from, for the price per pound ranges from $6 to about $37 and a pound will last approx one month. The $6 per pound is the one you want to buy, that way you don't have to pay a companies advertising cost! The seeds come in two different colors; black and white. There are some that claim there is a huge difference, but they are almost identical. I frequent this site often and have been amazed that chia has not been raved about.

Chia seed is the great regulator of all time! It helped with my constipation, as well as my friend's chronic diarrhea.

I have been reading up on the Chia seeds. I have not seen any posts on this website about this seed. It sounds like a very good energizer plus other health benefits. Has anyone used it and had positive results?

EC: Thank you for the suggestion - these seeds sound interesting!

Can you tell me specifically how chia helps with insomnia? I've done research but don't see anything much. Thanks.

Perhaps the chia, since it seems to give people so much energy especially if taken early in the day causes people to be more active so that they sleep better at night. Just guessing, but seems possible.
